7.3L Stick shift...

What is the last year I can get a F250 with a 7.3 and a stick shift as a powertrain? I am looking for a used truck with that combo and it seems that I would have better luck finding chickens teeth around here near where I live. I have found a couple on the net, but they are either raged out or in BFE. Also that is the last year I can get a stick shift and a (any) diesel cambo? Thanks Scott.....

2003 for the 7.3
I cant remember if you can get a 6.4 with a manual or not but they get rarer in newer trucks

through 2010 a stick shift was available with the 6.4's, however finding them is almost impossible. I've been watching for one and they are rare. Also the auto had a higher tow rating

Look at 350's they were a little more common with the manual tranny's, you can always change the badge to an F-250's

i feel your pain. i searched high and low before finally finding my truck 900 miles away. the 7.3/manual combo is definitely hard to find, and as stated, they're often previous work trucks or have been used hard. but when you do find the right one, its worth it. my wife and i flew to tampa fl to get mine, then drove it back to VA. but in my opinion the manual is way better than the auto...esp behind the 7.3. i hated the 4R100 auto.

Anymore the autos can stand up to more than manuals hence ford and Chevy only offer autos from the assembly line

Dodge is the last bastion for the 3/4-1ton manual transmission. Ford stopped in 2010, Chevy even earlier, and Dodge has rumors of following suit.

Not sure about the auto being sturdier than the manual... I'm willing to bet that there is two reasons..

#1 Research and Development
#2 Too much money for #1

Plus Dodge had the market cornered on the NV series.
